Today, Friday January 6th, 2015, the strike of the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán enters its 22nd day. Meanwhile, the negotiations between the school and the “Asociación Única de Trabajadores Administrativos y Manuales (Autamuady”) remain stagnant, to the point where the first exams were given yesterday in alternative sites. The strikers have also started asking for money in support of their cause.
The atmosphere of desperation is starting to affect the parents of recent high school graduates; they fear their children may lose the opportunity to get a bachelor’s degree from the renowned school.
Yesterday morning, 1,420 “Prepa 1” students in their second semester sat for their first midterms at “Polifórum Zamná”. The exam topics were Greek Etymology and English.
As a result, the “Polifórum Zamná” became a huge auditorium that sheltered more than a thousand students taking their first exams.
Meanwhile, the Autamuady reported that the university board has yet to make any statement as to the counterproposal (3.4% raise for the administration department’s salary) presented by the union for ending the 22 day strike.
Today, Friday February 6th, at 4 pm, a second march has been preceded by the school’s student front (Frente Estudiantil UADY); the purpose of this event will be to foster justice, equality and education. It started at the Monumento a la Patria and made its way to the central UADY building.
